95% of LASIK Patients are Satisfied

A study conducted by the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) announced that on average 95.4% of LASIK patients worldwide are satisfied with their new vision.  Richard L. Lindstrom, M.D., president of the ASCRS said “We find that there is solid evidence in the world’s scientific literature to affirm that there is an exceptionally high level of satisfaction in patients who have had LASIK surgery. While no surgery is perfect, certainly the 19 peer-reviewed studies of 2,199 patients show extremely high satisfaction rates.”

Doctors studied 2,195 articles and surveys going back ten years to find out how people felt about their LASIK surgery and the results showed overwhelming results in favor of it.  There have been 16.3 million patients of LASIK surgery worldwide, and more than ten years of clinical study making it one of the most successful elective surgeries today.

One of the most important factors that goes into having a successful and satisfactory experience with your LASIK eye surgery is to find the right doctor for you.  You’ll want to find a doctor who has the experience and the knowledge to help you decide the best surgery for your individual needs as well as deciding if you’re a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery.
